I received a sample to review and I must say I am looking forward to it, of course!!!

The tins and labels are lovely!

This particular blend is very aromatic and I can clearly see all of the ingredients. I must say I am picking up the scent of the ‘Tropics’ more than the floral prior to infusion BUT these roses are HUGE!!!!!

Almost done with the infusion and YES! I can smell the ROSES more as the infusion progresses! I would say equal sniffs of tropics and roses at this point!

Post infusion the liquid is alight brown and the post infusion scent is a tad more rose than tropics! Very neat scent!

The taste is HIGHLY rose with a fair amount of tropical taste to it as well. The Rooibos taste almost seems barely there which I find fascinating! It seems ANY Rooibos I have EVER had you can ALWAYS tell it’s a Rooibos! This…the taste of the rooibos is there but very much in the background. I would HIGHLY suggest this for people who have had not-so-good experiences with Rooibos in the past…but…I have to say it’s a highly florally-tasting flavor. I think the Rooibos does give it a tad of sweetness – possibly chopping off any weird floral after taste one may receive in other floral blends…if you know what I mean!

I’m being completely honest when I say…

Normally if I were to walk into a store and see these flavors on the shelf I might pass it up…but…I’m SO GLAD I was able to try this!!!! This is certainly something beautiful and rare and bold and unique! I really like it! It just goes to show you that you have to TRY NEW THINGS! If you don’t you might miss out on something wonderful!

Thanks again for your review! And I do agree.. trying new things opens up opportunities for the wonderful! I did debate on using just the rose petals. Always room for improvement :) .. but those whole roses are just so lovely to look at! ;) Cheers!
